Oduya injured, leaves game in first period


CHICAGO -- Chicago Blackhawks defenseman Johnny Oduya could miss a few games with an upper-body injury he suffered during the first period against the Boston Bruins on Sunday, Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville said.

Oduya played one shift during the first period. He left the ice at 2:34 of the first period and went to the locker room shortly afterward. He did not return to the game.

"We'll know more tomorrow," Quenneville said. "We'll see how he is. Upper body, but we'll see. Might miss a few [games]."

Oduya has two goals, three assists and is a minus-9 in 60 games this season. He is one of nine Blackhawks not to miss a game this season.
